Hilde’s little gift cards are so beautiful and perfect for that someone special:
‘Little Gift Cards’ by Hilde Janbroers-Stolk
Hilde Says: ” With all the birthdays coming up I thought it would be nice to add a cute little card on the present. The First Love Paper sheet has these perfect square images I could easily cut out and add on some cardstock. Just a flower and a quote sticker and you’re done! Pretty simple!”
Michelle ‘Angels’ arrangement is sure to inspire:

Trudi features the BTP Standing Bird in her altered shadow box:
‘A Joyful Heart’ by Trudi Harrison
Kaisercraft Products: Secret Admirer Collection – P997 Mystical, P999 Flirtatious, P1000 Demure, P1001 Humble, P1002 Sweetheart, P1003 Flame, PS252 12 x 12 Die Cut Luscious, SS163 Sticker Sheet – Quotes, CT738 Collectables – Doilies, CT739 Collectables – Icons; SB2214 Standing Shape – Bird, EM960 Posies
Other: Shadow Box, Ribbon, Twigs, Gesso, Ink, Glimmer Mist, Heidi Swapp Color Shine Plastic Shards
“The Standing Bird was altered with some white gesso. A varigated look was achieved by working with glimmer mists and color shine sprays. The edges and some areas of the bird’s body were enhanced with a little Teal Damask Ink. The bird was then attached to the front of a shadow box. Note: The shadow box was covered with patterned papers first.
The Secret Admirer papers have so many wonderful elements that can be fussy cut for a scissor happy gal like myself. I absolutely adore the large frame element from the Sweetheart paper which I cut out and attached to the back wall of the shadow box to frame my photo.
A corsage decorates the bird. This arrangement was created with some painted twigs, a few of the Collectables and fussy cut floral elements, a little ribbon and green and pink Posies.
A decorative bunting was created by folding over some of the Collectable Doily elements over a length of ribbon and securing with some glue.”
We will be back a little later with some more Tropicana inspiration.
